At Boston's Shreve Crump & Low, you can ensure that you'll have an ideal experience. Upon entry, you'll notice the strikingly beautiful interior and be greeted by a friendly, knowledgeable staff who will do their best to fill your needs, no matter what they are, with merchandise of the finest quality.
Voted Best Of Boston 2012 by Boston Magazine for fine jewelry, Shreve's carries everything from your high-end jewels (rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces) to gifts appropriate for everyone from newlyweds to newborns. All items are of the highest quality and are sure to elicit a squeal of delight from the recipient.
For those who are seeking something unusual, and Boston-themed, Shreve's carries a large selection of items, most notably, the "Gurgling Cod." An unusual pitcher modeled after the traditional English "glug jugs," and designed to be an anatomically correct representation of Boston's native fish, the Cod, they come in a variety of colors and sizes. These fun centerpieces can start a conversation among the most diverse group of dinner guests because when they are filled with water and poured into a glass, they make an amusing gurgling noise.
Most importantly, if you're shopping for that extra special ring (the diamond engagement ring), Shreve's is an excellent place to start. You will leave Shreve's either with a ring in hand, one to be designed, or at the very least well-versed in the four C's.
